comment Please help me understand [予習]{よ・しゅう}
It must be a regional thing. Junior high school students where I am have their trip as second years. 事前学習 might be more correct, and I trust your judgment, although I have seen 予習 used for it.

I hear から works pretty well when you're trying to capture the nuances of から

comment 「の」in「お嫁さんにしたいの好き」
I think not. Wouldn't that then mean that the person likes the general act of making girls into brides?

comment What does セレブ mean these days?
The gogen entry says a little bit more than that. It talks about how it originally referred to actresses and supermodels but now has a vague meaning associated with wealth and expensive accessories

comment Is there a term for words that share the same kana spelling?
I'm not sure if they actually would. Just intuition tells me that based on their kanji alone they would be inclusive.

Why must the terms homograph/homoglyph necessarily exclude kana?

comment What does 臨海学校 mean?
I admit that I haven't actually checked any other J-E dictionaries regarding this so I took out the free mention. I was indeed thinking of edict since its definitions, while sometimes very helpful, are often vague and nearly useless unless you already know the word. I just checked goo辞書 and it at least calls it a "seaside (summer) school." The biggest problem is probably that bilingual dictionaries seem to try to be as brief as possible. Searching a monolingual dictionary, of course, gives a perfectly adequate explanation
